Zehara has performed and taught Belly Dance classes in Flagstaff, Arizona, Tucson, Arizona and Tampa, Florida. Drawing upon her study in a variety of movement forms, spiritual traditions, anthropology, ancient history, and her passion for dance as a channel for mystical potential, Zehara created PRIMAL FUSION WORLD DANCE ™ in 2010. Inspired by the earth-based spirituality found in indigenous tribal cultures from around the world and the universal language of dance as an expression of self, PRIMAL combines a mixture of Aboriginal, African and Middle Eastern dance to create a spirited dance course that helps students release, let go and empower themselves through primal energy-based movement. Zehara has taught and performed Belly Dance all across New England, as well in Flagstaff and Tucson, Arizona, Tampa, Florida and now in her new home of Richmond, Virginia!
